Kristen Bell welcomes daughter Lincoln Bell Shepard!
Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard welcomed their first baby girl, Lincoln Bell Shepard, on Wednesday and commemorated the occasion with some hilarious tweeting.
The engaged couple announced the birth of their first child.
Kristen Bell gave birth to her first child, a daughter named Lincoln Bell Shepard, Wednesday afternoon.
About two hours ago, Dax Shepard tweeted: "Lincoln Bell Shepard is here. She has mom's beauty and dad's obsession with breasts. Hooray!!!"
The comedic theme followed, with Kristen Bell tweeting about an hour later, "My new roomate (sic) poops her pants and doesn't pay rent…basically @daxshepard1 pre-sobriety :) welcome baby Lincoln xo."
People magazine reports Bell, 32, and Shepard, 38, announced they were expecting a baby in November 2012. Bell joked that she was open to lots of delivery styles as long a she could feel as little pain as possible. "I want a glass of whiskey, I want the epidural in my back," said Bell. "I just want to get hit in the face with a baseball bat and wake me up when it's over, because I've seen the videos and it looks terrifying."
The Los Angeles Times reports Kristen and Dax have been a couple since 2007 but are not in a rush to get married. "The reason we're not rushing to get married is because I don't feel appropriate taking advantage of a right that's denied to my [gay and lesbian] friends," said Bell to Advocate magazine. Shepard asked Bell to marry him over the holidays in 2009.
Congrats to Kristen and Dax on Lincoln Bell Shepard!
